Coming down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday dared the PM to prove that she took money selling her paintings.
The TMC chief's strong reaction comes after BJP president Amit Shah on Tuesday alleged Banerjee's paintings were bought by chit fund owners for crores of rupees.
Addressing a public meeting in Birbhum, Banerjee said the BJP leaders have no courtesy and her party has initiated defamation proceedings "over the baseless allegation".
"Modi Babu (PM), I challenge you to prove that I have taken a single penny (for selling the paintings) in my account. You talk like a barbarian and have no courtesy," Banerjee said.
